Meet the Teacher
Hello! My name is Melissa J. Walker. I am pleased to share a little about myself with each of you. I am beginning my 22nd year of teaching. I have been blessed to become a member of the Dutchtown Elementary Bulldog Pups crew!
I am engaged to the most wonderful man named Davy who works in law enforcement. I am a mom of two boys, Jace (14) and Kassen (5). I love being a mom and feel blessed to have the two most wonderful sons a mother could ask for! I have lived in Henry County since the age of 4. I am a Leukemia survivor of 9 years since my diagnosis in May of 2011. I attended Henry County schools as a child and graduated from Stockbridge High School in 1994. I attended Shorter University for two years and went on to complete my Bachelor of Arts in Education at Piedmont College. I began teaching at Pate's Creek in August of 1999, and I completed my Master of Arts in Education through Piedmont College in 2002.
I am a very big lover of music! I enjoying playing the piano, saxophone, and flute. I enjoy singing, and of course, listening to all types of music! I also enjoy riding roller coasters, reading, swimming, spending time with my family, and taking trips to new and exciting places!
I love watching my fiance' race dirt track cars and spending time with family. I love the beach and hope to travel to see Europe one day! I am a huge UGA Bulldog fan and love watching college football. I enjoy going to Braves games too!
